Join Us In The Fight!
Let's face it: Illiteracy is a big problem in Memphis, especially with our children. According to Shelby County Schools statistics, about 75% of third-graders can't read at grade level. Memphis Grindhouse would like to help improve our children reading skills. For every purchase, Memphis Grindhouse will donate a portion of the proceeds to local Shelby County Elementary Schools to help reduce the illiteracy rate.
Fewer Memphis third grade students than last year are accomplished readers, according to Shelby County Schools’ annual state test data discussed in meetings with parents. About 24% of third graders in Shelby County Schools scored proficient in reading on the state’s standardized assessment TNReady. That’s down from about 27% last year, and in contrast to 36% of elementary students statewide who tested proficient.
Third-grade reading levels also have a ripple effect, and are a strong predictor of whether a student will graduate ready for college or a career. Children generally learn to read through the second grade, but by the third grade, they need to be able to read to learn new material.
